13th in ebook and printW AVAILABLE in AUDIOAudible US Audio the eBook PaperbackiBooks US Play TBAPrologueNDA Coffee DateCharleneI breathe into my palm to check for freshness I brushed my teeth less than ten minutes ago, but I pop two Altoids anyway Fresh breath is crucial I crunch down and spread the fiery cold bits over my tongue The burst of mint makes my eyes water, so I have to dab at the corners with my sleeve and breathe through my nose to avoid making it worse.Darren Westinghouse is picking me up for a coffee date The Darren Westinghouse, Chicago s NHL right wing and the most mysterious man in the league There are loads of rumors about him His dating history is unclear and based mostly on speculation and conjecture I m excited to get to know the man behind the intense, stoic mask My palms are sweaty, and my panties are inappropriately damp as I wander around my kitchen My reaction to anxiety is weird And rather inconvenient I ve already changed my panties once in the past half hour It s just coffee, I scold my crotch It doesn t seem to matter, though She s preparing for all possible scenarios I introduced myself to Darren when I went with my best friend, Violet, to an away game He was gentlemanly and sweet, offering to walk me back to my room I went in for a goodnight kiss that turned into an epic make out session We kissed like teenagers until my lips were raw It took a week before they finally stopped peeling.Today I m wearing shiny gloss that tastes like cotton candy my hope is that Darren likes the flavor and will want to kiss it off than once I smooth my sweaty palms down my jean covered thighs I m going for casual except under my jeans I m wearing a nice pair of lacy panties, just in case his hand happens to find its way into them My bra matches, of course.I check the time It s nine forty nine in the morning He s picking me up at ten, but those eleven minutes feel like they re taking an eternity to pass I mentally scroll through the approved topics of conversation obviously hockey, weather, my job, and my college experience are all approved I ve learned that it s best to give people the barest of facts and then shift the topic away from the really personal stuff People usually love to talk about themselves, so it s not all that hard to do At nine fifty three I do another breath check and startle as my doorbell chimes He s here I whisper shriek to no one Or maybe I m addressing my anxious vagina I take two deep breaths and count to three before I open the door I m still not adequately prepared for the vision taking up my front porch.Darren s in jeans and a long sleeved shirt so different than the suit he was wearing the last time I saw him His short hair is styled neatly, and his hard, icy blue eyes move over me in a casual sweep that I feel everywhere Darren is intense He s lightness and darkness fused together And he s unearthly beautiful It s a lot to process.A half grin tips his mouth and quickly becomes a disarming full smile that transforms his face from severe to stunning for as long as it lasts Hi It s almost a moan it s so breathy Hello, Charlene I have tingles below the waist from those two words Hi I m repeating myself Not smooth I m a little early, he says I hope that s okay I snap out of my Darren induced daze Yes Yeah, of course Just let me get my purse I turn, prepared to grab it from the kitchen, when I realize it s already hanging from my right arm Oh, never mind Looks like I m all set I hope he doesn t think I m a complete idiot.I shrug into my coat with Darren s help so courteous grab my keys from the hook, and step out onto the porch It s a crisp morning, but the sun is shining, so it takes the edge off the chill in the air.Darren is ultra polite, opening the passenger door and helping me in before he rounds the hood and takes the driver s seat We make small talk as we drive toward the water.I m a little surprised when Darren pulls into a Starbucks and heads for the drive thru This isn t quite what I had in mind when he proposed a coffee date I figured we d go to some quaint, cozy little caf and stare into each other s eyes I thought we could go to the park Oh, sure That would be great, I say Parks can be romantic Especially since it s kind of chilly today Maybe he ll have to put his arm around me to keep me warm I can totally get on board with that.Once we have our coffees, Darren drives to the water He parks the SUV, but leaves the engine running I assume we re going to get out and stroll the boardwalk, but instead we stay where we are and chat while we people watch Also not what I was expecting, but he smells great, so I guess I ll take it He s a quiet guy, so I end up doing the majority of the talking Instead of rambling about myself, I regale him with Violet stories, which make him chuckle a sound I like a lot After an hour or so, during which my stomach starts to grumble since I was too nervous to eat this morning, he shifts to face me He skims my cheek as he sweeps my hair over my shoulder.I lean into that touch, willing him to lean in, too And he does His thumb rests against that soft spot under my chin I would like to kiss you, he says I have coffee breath As do I I consider offering him a mint, but decide I don t care I tip my chin up Okay then His smile is soft and warm, in stark contrast to his hard features and icy eyes, and his lips feel like silk against mine I have no idea how long we kiss, but it s enough that my neck starts to get a kink He finally pulls back, those icy eyes heavy with the same lust that s ruining my underwear Would you like to have lunch with me In my head I turn lunch into extended foreplay, but either way, spending time with him is on my yes list Definitely Great That smile of his makes another appearance, shorting out all the connections to my brain and redirecting the energy to my lady bits.He reaches into the backseat and retrieves a messenger bag He then produces a file folder with my name printed neatly on the front of it Well, that s kind of odd Although that seems to be the way this date is going nice, but odd What s that I ask, the lust and excitement I was feeling a few seconds ago transforming into anxiety A non disclosure agreement, he says breezily, as if he s telling me the name of a flower.I ve signed plenty of non disclosure agreements during my time at Stroker and Cobb Financial Management It s necessary when working with famous hockey players and managing their finances But unless I ve read this whole thing incorrectly, Darren isn t going to ask me to manage his finances At least I hope he s not I m sorry, why would a non disclosure agreement be necessary His brow furrows, making the sharp lines of his face even severe and slightly ominous Because I d like to have lunch with you I surreptitiously place my hand on the armrest, near the door handle Just in case You need a non disclosure agreement for lunch He runs his hands down his thighs I d like to take you to my house For lunch Yes Is lunch code for something I get of his furrowed brow Code Maybe the rumors about him are true Maybe he really is some kind of Dom and he s looking for me to be his next submissive I m not sure how to feel about that I ve read all the Fifty Shades books, and sure, some of that stuff sounds like a fun time, but I don t like to sign contracts for anything outside of work and banking Even then, it makes me uncomfortable Yeah, like, is lunch a code word for some kinky sex games or something His furrow turns into an arch, and a slightly sinister smile tugs at the corner of his sinfully sexy mouth The same mouth that was recently suctioned to mine No Although I m certainly not opposed to kinky sex games if that s what you d prefer in lieu of lunch I pick up the folder, which he s left on the dash between us and flip it open The agreement is several pages long I glance at Darren and raise my own eyebrows Take your time I can wait He smiles again, but it seems like a grimace I scan the contents It s incredibly thorough, with a whole bunch of clauses There s even one pertaining to a credit card and a budget for clothing and lingerie What in the actual fuck I close the file folder and pass it to him I d like you to take me home He grins widely and produces a pen His smile is so pretty I almost forget why I want to go home Then I remember the pre date paperwork I hold up a hand No, you re not understanding I d like you to take me to my house, not yours I m not signing an NDA agreement for a lunch date especially this type of NDA That smile of his drops, and he blinks rapidly, fingers tapping against the manila file folder But I thought we were enjoying each other s company We were But there s no fucking way I m signing this, so if you want to have lunch with me, you ll have to do it without an NDA He s clearly experiencing some conflict over this because he stares at me long enough that my skin grows hot before he finally says, It s meant to protect us both It s not a condom, Darren It s an NDA The next thing I know I ll have some kind of tracking chip and I ll be tied to your bed He tips his head to the side and seems to be fighting a smile Would you like to be tied to my bed Not if I have to sign an NDA And if you don t have to sign an NDA The answer to that question is still no, I think, but I shrug, because even him asking makes things happen in my panties I m a very private person, Charlene So am I Doesn t mean I make all the people in my life sign an NDA because of it If you want to have lunch with me, you can do it without asking me to sign away my rights He regards me for several long, intense moments in which I have to fight to hold eye contact Jesus, I m nervous Okay, no NDA, he finally concedes But I have rules for dating, Charlene So do I, and we can discuss them over lunch flag 162 likesLike see review View all 8 comments Oct 31, 2018 Patty Belongs To Kellan Jesse Lautner

minority for this one I won t go into a rant, or I ll try not to I love this author, she can write some fantastic books, especially the angstier ones The Pucked series has been hit or miss for me I struggled with Pucked, even though I ve enjoyed it the I revisit it I disliked Pucked Up a lot, and I absolutely loved the heck out of Randy s Pucked Over Under and Lance s Pucked Off books Those were amazing, so amazing With that said, I was looking forward to this one I mean Darren and Charlene are this enigma that has been in the background for the majority of the other books What s the deal with them, how did they get together So yeah, the anticipation was strong I mean, we got some info on Pucked I ll go back to that later but not enough So imagine my surprise when the book picks up and we re two years into their relationship Wait, what Really And the worst part is that there are no flashbacks or real explanations as to what s going on So, for me it s a timing issue Either this book should ve come out after Pucked or Pucked Up or it needed some serious flashbacks Obviously I m not a fan of books that just suddenly drop you in the middle of an ongoing relationship, especially without flashbacks Is hard to relate to the characters and hard to connect with them, also hard to follow the story and the motivations behind the character actions You either are or aren t I had a hard time understanding that these characters would ve never had some of these conversations in the previous 2 years since it still sounded that they had a pretty steady relationship I also kept questioning the why now and why the sudden 180 other than to fit the story to the timeline And this brings me to my next issue.This book was highly inconsistent with certain things mentioned in previous books, mainly Pucked I kept questioning certain things because I was sure I remembered different things from Pucked After I read this I immediately jumped into the Pucked audio and I was definitely right Certain things about Charlene are described differently and also certain things that Charlene tells Violet about Darren I guess are not true any I m confused, on Pucked Charlene tells Violet He s the sweetest man alive He s close to his family I want to have his little hockey babies He s got to be the most romantic man I ve ever met So yeah, that was in Pucked In the beginning of Pucked Love Darren is none of that And I won t spoil you the drama and the bombshells in PL, but they are definitely inconsistent with Pucked So yeah The sex scenes are few and far in between, there s a lot of mentions of them having sex but not descriptive scenes, if that makes sense For a couple that had always been rud to be into kinks and stuff, that was just weird to listen I was just expecting something else Overall, I didn t get much in the feels department and couldn t connect with Darren or Charlene Seems like a lot was thrown in there either for shock value or just to make it fit with the story The character development was just not quite there, they both still felt like background characters while we got caught up with the rest of the gang While Violet also takes over in this one when does she not she s tolerable LoL So overall, it wasn t bad but it wasn t great I guess I just expected but then again Pucked Off was a really though act to follow It s a shame because it s the last one in the series If you re a fan of the series I m sure you will enjoy this one, especially the catching up with the side characters I m still a huge fan of this author though and can t wait for what she ll bring next flag 44 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Jan 07, 2018 Karen Mc rated it it was amazing review of another edition How can I pen to words how much the Pucked

being back in the Pucked world again with Pucked Love These characters have always felt like family so it was like coming home While readers were offered a glimpse of Charlene and Darren in the other Pucked novels, they both remained a puzzle, begging to be solved In Pucked Love, Charlene and Darrens mystery is finally uncovered, and oh is it hot and heartfelt This series started with Alex and

Charlene and Darren are two kindred spirits with beautiful hearts who are fated together in the most messy but meaningful of ways Their story this story is just as much of an evolution as it is a romance Over and over, I let her fly away, even though it goes against every instinct I have Like the rest of this series, Pucked Love is a feel worthy fusion of spice, soul, swoon, humor, and heart

want in a romance and PUCKING PERFECTION Only you make me feel this alive From Pucked to Pucked Love, Helena Hunting created not only characters, but a family of friends, a family that felt real, one

bid them farewell Pucked Love is not only Charlene and Darrens heartbreakingly beautiful journey it s is the perfect send off to the Pucked series.Little did I know that when I began this beloved book

heart hitting moments I cried tears from extreme laughter to sweet swoon to sorrow Tears of feels ALL THE FEELS This story and series are EVERYTHING Oh God do I love this Pucked series so much I FELT

exactly why he is the way he is but not only do we get to find out about Darren but we finally get the background on Charlene, to say I wasn t expecting what came with her would be a HUGE ASS understatement because WOW Mind freaking blown Darren and Charlene s story has been a whirlwind of emotions and that s just putting it lightly My heart damn near shattered near the end, my emotions were all over the place The heartbreak and pain they ve both dealt with makes your heart ache for them The main thing I loved in this book was the way Darren cares for and protects Charlene He ll do anything for her, it s so damn adorable watching this awkward man speak out to his friends about their relationship I ll never put the lid on your jar Pucked Love is the last book in the Pucked series and I m having a really hard time wrapping my head around that because I never want it to end I already want from all of them Alex, Violet, Miller, Sunny, Randy, Lilly, Lance, Poppy, Darren and Charlene and the little munchkins are the perfectly imperfect family that I wish I had Helena Hunting is legit the queen of romcoms She never EVER fails to make me laugh and this book was just as funny as the ones before it.Helena is the kind of author you keep coming back to You can t just stop at reading one book you HAVE to read them all, you can never get enough The time and effort she puts into all of her books shows every single time and that s one of my absolute favourite things about this author Pucked Love was fun and sexy with a whole lot of angst which makes the perfect kind of book Kudos to helena for bringing life to Darren and Charlene s story because it was a huge ass hit for me and just to quote Alex because he was on point and I m an emotional mess right now I don t know whether to pat you on the back or punch you in the face Lol.Start the series here 1 Pucked 1.1 A Pucked Holiday 2 Pucked Up 3 Pucked Over 4 Forever Pucked 4.1 Area 51 Pucked series deleted scenes

blown away by him His inner thoughts made me SWOON I m not kidding when I say he is my new favorite He was just so perfect The most perfect boyfriend EVER What I loved most about this novel, was that we jumped into a relationship that was already established Seeing DC s thoughts after being together for two years was fascinating They knew each other so well, but still kept so much of their feelings and worries to themselves.PUCKED LOVE was way than I could have imagined It was also so very different than expected A great kind of different, but still different It was a quick and easy read SEXY Definitely sexy and oh so funny.The girls made me crack up non stop They were even funnier than the guys I envy their friendship, easy banter and loyalty that they demonstrated at every

this book starts is where they have been together for two years Don t let that mislead you though at times it is very clear they still have a lot to learn about each other One aspect of it that I loved , is that it also looks at both Darren and Charlene s individual relationships with their closest friends It isn t all couple focused There are little twists in the story that surprised me often about other characters It is laugh out loud funny It is kindle freezer moments worthy level of sexy It is truly poignant in places and crazy It is so beautifully, awkwardly, perfectly romantic Darren

those adorable and hilarious Pucked people I just love them Darren and Charlene are a bit different from them all though They re not as open and talkative and crazy happy They both have secrets in their pasts that they don t want to share with anyone Not even with each other.Both have had difficult childhoods, which is why they re both a little complicated when it comes to relationships But Darren is learning he wants to spend his life with Charlene But Charlene is still too scared She doesn t want to hope for something foreverish with Darren He has to work really hard to convince her And he does, in the most adorable ways I really loved reading this book I loved seeing crazy Violet again and the others But Darren and Charlene They re difficult to read I couldn t decide if I didn t like them of if it was just all written a bit heartless I never really felt any real feelings for and from them in the beginning Which could come from their weird pasts, but it could ve been written a bit emotional We don t really see how they fell in love they ve been together for two years already Ugh, I don t even know what I want to say And Charlene She s so weirdly submissive with Darren Again it has to do with her past, but I just didn t love love her BUT maybe I was just in a weird mood while reading this book I really loved reading it I just wanted a bit MORE More emotions More Charlene is in love with Darren and we actually see it The poor guy is so in love with her and she seems so cold But of course she s not but still Ugh I also wanted sex There s SO much talk about sex and kink and whatnot, but the real explicit scenes are missing Of course there IS sex in here, but not as much as there should ve could ve been it was a Pucked book, so I loved it Just because you have to love these books And I really loved Darren and Charlene But maybe they should ve gotten a book away from this series Maybe D C from the previous books should ve gotten a funny, sweet and sexy final Pucked book and the D C from this book could ve gotten a complete standalone Dramance with background and falling in love and drama and sexiness I would ve SO loved that book too ANYWAY Pucked Love wasn t bad I really adored all the people and the fun and exciting happenings But it was just a bit too much of some things and a bit not enough of other things if that makes any sense But with the epilogue

what to expect from this book It could have been the wacky fun from Pucked book 1 or the deep and touching story we got in Pucked Off book 5 Either way I knew I was in for a whole lot of enjoyment and I wasn t disappointed Helena Hunting has expertly produced a story with a wonderful mix between delicious sexiness, tender sweetness and laugh out loud hilarity I was captivated by both main characters, their back story as well as the romance between them.Neither had an ideal upbringing, one was worse than the other and their views on relationships were less than perfect Each had doubts and struggled with their own anxieties He was afraid to open up and she was afraid to commit Neither had confided about their troubled pasts to anyone and they honestly didn t want to Ever But once the cat s out of the proverbial bag, both are open and understanding Darren treated Charlene with the utmost care and devotion His actions combined with his inner thoughts made him absolutely swoon worthy and top of my book boyfriend list I really enjoyed how their relationship evolved It was organic and heartfelt and I fell completely in love with this wonderfully broken pair of people who I had been wondering about for a long time Together they made a beautiful couple whose journey towards happiness gave me all the feels And it s always important to mention that no Pucked book would be complete without the appearance from the guys and wacky girls from the previous books who made me laugh so much and want to be part of their close knit group Pucked Love is book 6 of the Pucked series

among romance readers in the community I actually still have a lot of not so nice things to say about the first book and I literally can t even discuss that book without my temper flaring can you tell that Violet and Alex are my least favorite couple, lol But while there is a lot of hate, there is a bit of love especially for my main squeeze Lance Romero and Helena Hunting has somehow managed to make me love some of these characters and I m not gonna lie, I m gonna miss this wild bunch Now let s get on with this last hoorah Charlene Hoar and Darren Westinghouse have spent the past two years living by one rule what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors That is until Darren s teammates walk in on Charlene in a compromising position then their group of friends start asking questions But what happens when Charlene and Darren s own secret pasts threaten to break them apart, will these two be able to find the courage to let one another in or will being vulnerable prove to be too much for either one of them to handle Pucked Love is the final installment in the Pucked series and while it can be read as a standalone, I feel like reading this book first without having read the previous books would just ruin the HEAs for all the other couples so I personally would recommend reading the series in order before picking up this book Moving on, I have been DYING for Charlene and Darren s book for quite some time now and was high key pissed when the audiobook was released months before the ebook because patience is not one of my virtues I ve had so many questions about our secretive pair and I felt like I ve waited forever for all of them to be answered I gotta say, while I did enjoy the romance and getting to see these characters again, the inconsistencies in the story line was what held me back from rating this book higher and I m kind of scratching my head a bit because how does one mess up the details for a story they created I m gonna start off by discussing what didn t work for me in this book before I get to the good stuff So this book starts off with a prologue that takes place two years prior and shows Darren laying down his rules when it comes to dating and Charlene basically saying fuck your rules and telling Darren how things were going to be between them Then there s a time jump to the present and it just felt like an awkward place to start because we don t really get a strong enough backstory for these two In the previous books, Charlene and Darren s relationship was always hush hush so we as readers never really knew what was going on between them so going into this story with the two year time jump didn t work for me Hunting should ve either thrown in some flashback scenes of when these two first started dating or she should ve moved Darren and Charlene s story up on the timeline so all these missing gaps could ve been filled in Also, these two definitely don t act like a couple who have been together for two years During the first half of the book, Darren and Charlene are quite awkward around one another, as if they re walking on eggshells and not wanting to say or do something to offend the other It was just so weird and things felt forced which doesn t make sense because they seemed to care a lot for each in the previous books And finally we have the inconsistencies Y all, I m really confused because some of the details about Darren s family life doesn t match up with what we were previously told In Forever Pucked, we re told that Darren s parents live in the South Carolina but in Pucked Love it states that Darren was raised by his strict grandparents and his parents aren t involved in his life Now the thing is, the truth about Darren s childhood plays a major part in this story as it explains why he is so big on privacy when it comes to relationships so changing such an important detail like that just for added shock value screws up the story line There are also a few other inconsistencies about Darren that had me going back to reread of Forever Pucked and this is another reason why I think this book should ve been written earlier because maybe then all these inaccuracies could ve been avoided.Now onto the good Despite their awkwardness in the first half of the book, I really do like Charlene and Darren as a couple and I think they fit perfectly with one another They ve both been through some shit and they get each other and understand one another s hesitations so that s why they work well together Even though he may seem a bit intimidating, Darren is a low key softie and will protect Charlene no matter the cost which is probably why he s my second favorite hero in this series because no one can beat my baby Lance of course Charlene on the other hand has proven that she definitely has a bit of crazy in her I wasn t expecting it at all and now I see why she and Violet are best friends While there was a lot of foolery when it came to all the plot twists, I can t help but say that I was somehow entertained by them Yeah they were over the top and some were just down right strange, but Hunting had me cracking up so I guess that s a plus in my books Pucked Love was definitely not a perfect book but it wrapped up this series quite nicely and like I said before, I am definitely gonna miss these characters and all their wild antics These books were good, cheesy entertainment when I needed to be pulled out of my reading slumps and despite the rocky start, I don t regret picking up this series in the end flag 16 likesLike see review Oct 30, 2018 Shabby

comes along and just jumps up and hits me other the head and that s exactly how I feel about Helena Hunting I still feel that way and she brings this series to an amazing conclusion in Pucked Love While this was a romance and the couple in this book was front and center, this book was so much It was about relationships of all kinds strained family ones, messed up family ones, those between friends, those between teammates, and those between a man and a woman As this series has progressed, the books have changed and that s not a complaint I think that shows a writer who doesn t stick to a formula, she writes the book the character need in the way it needs to be told and Ms Hunting gave this couple exactly what they needed This book was filled with landmines as both the hero and heroine have messed up childhoods that shaped them into the people they are and they have baggage, a lot of baggage they haven t shared with anyone even their closest friends or each other even though they ve been a couple for two years What I loved about this book is that this in addition to learning so much about each other during this book, they learned so much about themselves allowing them to open their hearts to one another I have loved many of the books in this series, but Pucked Love stands out in the very best of ways.Charlene and Darren pinged my interest a couple of books back and I was so excited their story finally came to fruition and it was totally worth the wait After a bit of a faux pas, not only have all of Darren s friends and teammates seen Charlene naked, they think they know all about their sex life which is far from the truth I was a bit surprised by how this situation played out, and I don t want to say a lot other than I m glad it didn t go down to some deep, dark place I ll admit my heart kind of hurt for Charlene and Darren because they were both so cautious with one another not wanting to put pressure on the other asking for too much It was like neither one of them felt comfortable to ask for what they might want from the other in their relationship other than sexually and while they were happy with one another, there was so much missing Both their childhoods were a bit messed up and it skewed their thinking on relationships, but I loved watching them move forward as this book went on There was a lot of going forward only to have them take a step or two back, but that only made the reward of staying together that much sweeter These two fumbled their way through their relationship and it was endearing and a joy to watch I adored them together and I especially grew very fond of Darren who was always stoic but as this book unfolded his personality came out and He was such a sweetheart underneath all of his hard outer shell.All the couples from the previous books were integral to this story and featured quite a bit as the team is once again in a playoff run I enjoyed seeing how their relationships were progressing and the bond they all had making them this wonderful family unit.So many secrets come to light in this book, some crazy, some sad, some downright scary, but through it all this group persevered, and most of all Charlene and Darren found that facing their pasts together only made them stronger.From one fantastic moment to the next, Pucked Love was a joy to read and as a long time reader I could not have asked for a better ending to this series flag 9 likesLike see review Jul 20, 2018 Rebecca rated it it was amazing review of another edition All throughout Helena Hunting s Pucked Series, she has provided

couple, and because of the limited information given, readers don t really know these two characters very well I mean it s clear that Charlene and Violet as well as Darren and Alex share incredible friendships and that they ve both found a small group of friends who have become their family, but other than those facts and the random conversations that reveal a few interesting tidbits, much about Charlene and Darren s pasts and presents remain unknown, so heading into Pucked Love, I was beyond ready for Hunting to give me the dirt on both Charlene and Darren and gain so much needed information to fully picture exactly who these two characters are And BOY does Hunting give readers a complete character sketch of both of them, and despite the fact that I could have never imagined how messed up Charlene and Darren s back stories would be or how their childhoods could singlehandedly be what s preventing them from going all in with each other, Pucked Love delivers one amazing story that proves just how perfect Charlene and Darren are for one another and how their separate broken pieces fit so well when they are molded together My first piece of advice for readers heading into Charlene and Darren s story is to not go into the story with any preconceived notions about them because regardless of what readers think they know about the hero and heroine, they re not even close because what Hunting has provided readers with when it comes to Alex and Violet s best friends only skims the surface of who these two characters are the truth about them can only be provided through reading their story, told through their own perspective, and now that I m finished with Pucked Love, I can unequivocally say that Charlene and Darren are right next to Violet and Alex as my favorite Pucked series characters Even though Charlene and Darren have been together for two years and have been friends with the other couples of the series for that time, both of them as well as all of their friends are than aware of the fact that their relationship is not like the others, and while the opening scene of Pucked Love doesn t bode well for Charlene s friends counterparts views on Charlene and Darren s connection, what they witnessed doesn t shed the kind of the light on Charlene and Darren that the guys think it does, but it is the catalyst for the changes that begin to take place with these two extremely private and independent characters Darren Westinghouse is an intense and stoic man one who prefers to live out of the spotlight and in a carefully constructed environment where he is in complete control No one, not even Alex and especially Charlene, knows all of Darren s sides because he only shows them what he wants them to see and anything that s too personal, too messed up, or too extreme gets locked away in a place that he would much rather never dwell on again But with the expansion draft, the playoffs, and a few unexpected encounters, Darren is going to need to bare all of his secrets and hope that once the truth is told that Charlene will still stand by him because even though he never truly acknowledged it, he loves Charlene with everything that he is and he refuses to give her up Once everything is laid out in the open, readers will understand just how amazing of a man Darren is and they ll have a newfound respect for the man who lived through a messed up childhood that distorted his perception of everything associated with relationships and still managed to be a kick butt friend and hockey player and a than giving and loving boyfriend even if his ways of showing it are rather unconventional I ve always been intrigued by the close relationship that Charlene and Violet share They seem like polar opposites but they re each other s constant and that will never change Charlene s childhood was just as jacked up as Darren s but on opposite ends, and once Charlene s truths are told revealed, it s than clear as to why Charlene thrives on stability and independence and prefers to move forward with constancy, which means she doesn t handle change well nor does she want to talk about her feelings or be vulnerable around anyone The perception people have when it comes to Charlene is important to her she doesn t want to be seen as weird or different, even though that s exactly who she is, and while there s nothing wrong with Charlene, she cannot handle anyone knowing about her past because she s afraid it will leave her with no one and nothing I have to admit that Charlene s hesitancies and refusal to change the dynamics of her relationship with Darren frustrated me way than the backwards steps that Darren took, but that doesn t mean I don t understand why Charlene was so afraid it s just that Darren was than trying and I just really wanted them both to see themselves as worthy of the other Hunting s Pucked series is not just about the love between a couple it s also about the bond that is formed amongst friends, and in Pucked Love, it s clear that the friendships that Darren has with his teammates and his small group of friends as well as the connection Charlene has with the women who she considers her tribe are crucial to their lives and responsible for helping both Darren and Charlene to see what they could have with each other if they d only allow everyone in.I absolutely LOVED EVERYTHING about Pucked Love The thoughtful and sexy storyline, the strong friendships, the laugh out loud situations, the heartfelt moments, and the unique insights into who Charlene and Darren were and are Sebastian York and Stella Bloom were perfect narrators for the story they perfectly capture the hero and heroine s idiosyncrasies and the mind games they have with themselves due to everything that has happened to them in their life The Pucked series is one of my favorite sports romance series of all time, and it s due to Hunting s storytelling, the way she crafts her characters, and her ability to create storylines that are full of steam, sass, and scandalous moments 5 Poison Apples The Fairest of All Book Reviews flag 9 likesLike see review Nov 02, 2018 Pavlina Read sleep less blog rated it really liked it

Westinghouse, but he turned out to be too precious for words He, Lance, and Randy are my Pucked Trifecta I think this was the sweetest and most romantic of the Pucked books, and ranks up there with Pucked Off as the one with the most feels Darren and Charlene are not who you think they are, at all There s so much to these two that you would never expect from having seen them in all the previous books I really enjoyed the light bulb moments Darren had, when it came to their relationship There were some funny scenes with his teammates as he tried to figure out what he was doing and where things were going with Charlene And then there s be such sweet and tender times when he was with her, or thinking about their relationship, and he would just make me swoon Charlene really surprised me as well She always seemed so put together and sure of herself, but oh how looks can be deceiving Her history wasn t something I could have ever imagined and my heart just hurt for her I loved that Ms Hunting could have me laughing my butt off one minute and then holding back the tears the next As much as I love audiobooks I miss being able to highlight my favorite parts And there were so many favorite parts to this book I listen mostly in my car or at the gym so I can t even make notes, and even though I just finished this yesterday it s hard to recall some of the quotes and things I wanted to remember Ah well, I ll just have to wait for the ebook for that kind of thing I hesitate to even post this part for fear of the backlask I might receive, but since this is a review for the audiobook I need to at least mention the narrators Let me just say this about the narration, which I d give about a 3.5 based on Audible s star system of 3 as Pretty Good it was better than pretty good, just not great for me I do think Stella did a very good job as Charlene and wouldn t have minded her doing the whole book, although I loved being inside Darren s head so honestly, I wouldn t have changed the dual pov I know there are so many people who love SebYo s voice, I m just not one of them Please don t stone me While I thought his narration was fine, I did feel like his take on Darren was a little monotonous and lacking in emotion, and I wish he hadn t even tried to give Lance an accent But Darren s character is so compelling that I kind of tuned out the voice, if that makes sense, and just enjoyed the story Ms Hunting wrote flag 9 likesLike see review Jul 28, 2018 Brandi rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves 2018, arc, hockey romance, it s a signed

me, from beginning to end, but when that last page was turned, I felt nothing but complete gratification and bliss Helena Hunting has just rocked my world, once again.Darren and Charlene Charlene and Darren These two have been like an enigma to me Such mystery surrounded these two that I didn t know what was coming There were hints here and there, but nothing to paint a full beautiful picture like the one this book portrayed Once I delved in, I knew I was going to be blown away by these two Their pasts, their struggles, their craving for one another it ran much deeper than I could have ever imagined In Pucked Love, we get to witness some major shifts in their relationship and that journey is something else I ve just absolutely fallen in love with these two, with their relationship, with their dynamic, with everything that they represent.This romance was than an emotional powerhouse, so I don t want to scare you away It had impeccable writing with tons of comedic relief from all of your favorite characters from the series It had loads of heart, tons of entertainment, and enough sexy times that will have you blushing from head to toe It s crazy It s fun It was just a complete
